Jagdtiger prototype

Post by Armortek » Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:12 pm

As we start with the prototype, we will post details here. For now the only information we have to share are the dimensions:
Length : 1730mm
Width : 600mm
No. of parts : just over 1,600

The weight will be more than the King Tiger, but should not be substantially higher.

Our favourite quote comes from a great, long lasting customer ......
"I have managed to ignore your previous releases, .....I have too many Armortek kits now, more than I should indeed, more than I will be able to assemble and play in this lifetime, but the JAGDTIGER I just cannot let it pass..."
:D

Are there any photos of the beast before it was ‘restored?’

Oh yes, even moving images, taken just after it's capture by the allies, still on German ground!
